GE Introduces New "Data Collection Appliance" for IIoT
GE quietly introduced a very interesting new product at OTC last week, which is essentially a version of Proficy Historian that can be connected close to the field level in a ruggedized form, making a “data collection appliance” for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). ARC has long been a big advocate of driving data collection and historian functions closer to the process to provide a “single version of the truth” for process operations. If the age of the Industrial Internet of Things means a world of connected appliances sharing data, we are going to need a whole new set of appliances to do this that created specifically for process applications. This is one of these new generation of products that ARC believes will proliferate in the age of connected machines.
